It is no secret that construction jobs can be some of the most dangerous that exist. However, this is not an excuse for any type of negligence that might put you in danger. When you are operating in a construction capacity, you should have an expectation that your employer will protect you and provide a safe working environment. If this doesn't happen and you suffer any type of injury, you may have recourse to file a lawsuit for damages and reimbursement for medical bills.

Types of Construction Accidents
While it is true that construction sites can be dangerous, that doesn't mean that there aren't dangers that you should be protected against. Frequently, construction accidents occur because an employee wasn't provided with the proper equipment, the equipment was defective, or the employer wasn't taking the proper precautions to keep his employees protected.
Some of the most common construction accidents that cause personal injury are the following:
- Burn accidents
- Chemical burns or spills
- Crane accidents
- Falling debris
- Defective equipment
Holding the Guilty Parties Responsible
Our attorney's experience with construction accidents has shown that, oftentimes, the injured party believes that their only option is a workmen's compensation case. However, this is not actually the case. Many times, the cause of your injury might be because of a third-party's negligence, for instance if you were using a piece of equipment that was defective.
There are multiple ways to seek compensation in construction accident cases and Mr. Jeffress can help you to find them. He approaches every case individually and ensures that you will always be able to contact him with your questions. You will never feel like a number at Jeffress Law. Additionally, all cases are reviewed individually and are treated on a contingency-fee basis, which means you won't pay a thing unless Mr. Jeffress earns a cash award or settlement for you.
